The South Carolina Philharmonic is excited to present The Orchestra Moves!
This interactive program provides students in grades 3-5 the opportunity to learn about music
by connecting, and performing, with the S.C. Phil during concerts in February 2017.
By any definition, music moves.
Melody, rhythm, and harmony all change, shift, and
develop. When the S.C. Phil plays for us, we may
notice more than one kind of movement. On the
outside, we can hear sounds move as the musicians
change their pitches, rhythms, and dynamics. We
can see the musicians’ bodies move as they play. On
the inside, we may feel our emotions moving and
changing in response to the music we hear.
Sometimes music might even create a sense of
physical movement as sounds become heavier or
lighter, rise up or tumble down. Through the Link Up
repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating
interactive performance with the S.C. Phil, we’ll
discover how the orchestra moves!
• help them prepare for concerts by leading rehearsals/sectionals,
• or present about the life of a professional musician.
Schools that adopt a musician are able to receive
special discounted tickets to select S.C. Phil
concerts and can visit a rehearsal to see “their”
musician in action, and meet Music Director
Morihiko Nakahara.
In the fall, teachers are provided with the repertoire
students will perform by singing and/or playing the
recorder (above, right) or violin, a teacher guide, and a
resource guide for each participating student.
The cost is $5.25 per person. Groups of 200+ are $4.75
per person. This fee covers concert admission and the
teacher/student resource guides. Recorders may be
purchased from the S.C. Phil for $2.50 each.

Two traveling, age-appropriate
educational programs that serve as an
introduction to the symphony orchestra
– with a theatrical twist.
Aesop’s Fables
Written for orchestra and narrator, local
composer Richard Maltz brings to life through
music a collection of stories passed down for
many generations. Aesop’s Fables introduces
the instruments of the orchestra and teaches
students about basic musical elements such as
melody, harmony, and rhythm. Your students can
create artwork to be displayed at the performance
to complement each story: “The Hare and the
Tortoise,” “The Fox and the Grapes,” “The Ants and
the Grasshopper,” “The Oak and the Reeds,” and
“The Milkmaid and her Pail.”
Carnival of the Animals (Pictured)
Composed by Camille SaintSaëns, this piece has been
widely used to introduce
children to classical music.
From the majestic lion to
an aquarium full of fish,
each movement highlights
animal characteristics with
music. Students will have
an opportunity to create
artwork to be displayed at the performance to
complement the music.
Contact the S.C. Phil at
[email protected] for pricing information.

together in our three youth orchestras: the String
Orchestra (age 8 and up), Repertory Orchestra
(grades 7-12/intermediate full symphony),
and Youth Orchestra (grades 9-12/advanced
full symphony). The orchestras perform three
concerts a year (see below).
